Not sure what is Gameforge is doing on this. If we don't get more players trying out the game, might as well most active players would just eventually quit.
Everyone was expecting that going free to play, this game would click but apparently that's not what is happening.
Pretty sure the long queue/waiting time on getting a match making on party/instance or pvp etc is one cause of this.
Really rare to find any mmorpg we no pay-to-win content but to get more people to love and try the game, Gameforge needs to step up.
Get some mmo Youtubers/reviewers site and/or improve the performance issues the game has (which I think would only happen when they bring the UE update)...
It's so sad that even I bought the premium package of the game, seeing my dead friends list both in EU and NA servers just shows how much many people are quitting.
500-600+ in steamdb? steamdb.info/app/1418100/
This is even worse than other mmorpg private servers
